Vinification

This refers to the process known as vinification, which includes all procedures and measures in the vineyard and cellar to produce wine from grapes. Grape varieties were cultivated and wine produced at least 6,000 to 8,000 years ago, as evidenced by plant remains found in Asia Minor and numerous ancient wine vessels and artefacts from many regions. Transcaucasia and the advanced civilisations of Mesopotamia are regarded as the cradle of wine culture. According to the latest research, however, one of the most likely ancient origins may also lie in neighbouring Turkish south-eastern Anatolia near the biblical Mount Ararat.
